Shamsiah stresses that IP rights are not new in Malaysia and as the custodian of IP rights in Malaysia, MyIPO has been creating the needed awareness in IP protection and capacity building within the general public as well as stakeholders; all towards the creation of a healthy, vibrant and exciting IP Ecosystem.
MyIPO's Teh Tarik Session today focuses on ICT companies as IP is a vital asset for all technology and innovation based companies. Each of the Teh Tarik Sessions provides a unique and excellent opportunity for businesses, influencers, stakeholders and key players to participate, engage, and share best practices in the area of IP Valuation and IP Financing.
Shamsiah emphasises that for this year's Teh Tarik Session, MyIPO is targeting sectors and industries such as ICT, Entertainment, Creative, Multimedia, Biotechnology, Green Technology, Research Institutes, Universities, as well as IP practitioners, IP agents, and accountants.
